Starbucks goes Asian with its new blended beverages --- Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino blended beverage and Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino blended beverage --- that fuses high-quality ingredients sourced from different parts of Asia.
Starbucks Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino is an equally innovative beverage combining Hojicha, a type of Japanese roasted tea, with Starbucks own Tazo Earl Grey tea-infused jelly to give this beverage a one-of-a-kind taste and mouth feel never achieved before. The nutty and toasty flavors of Hojicha is flavorful yet refreshing due to the addition of the firm, bite-enticing Earl Grey jelly.
Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Beverage: Tall-P155, Grande-P165, Venti-P175
Starbucks Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino combines juicy whole kernels of red azuki beans and matcha, a finely-milled green tea which is the most superior form of green tea in Japan. The refreshing combination of green tea with the juicy plumpness of sweet-savory azuki beans give this drink a deliciously rich distinct flavor.
You can enjoy these new beverages with new food items Starbucks has to offer.

For now, I am going to enjoy the Fish & Chips Wrap as much as I can and all the other food products they are offering because come June 12, 2012, the five new food items will replace some of the old ones. I am so excited for all the food items and beverages to hit Starbucks stores on June 12 so do not forget to visit Starbucks on June 12 to try the new Asian beverages and yummy food items!
